Drake Hosts SNL: Watch Video of a Best and Worst Sketches
May 15, 2016 - accent chair
The Degrassi star-turned-rapper gave it his all on his return to Studio 8H in his second double-duty army as host and low-pitched guest (in support of his new manuscript Views). While a amusement in some sketches might’ve been some-more controversial than, say, a turn of excusable despondency on a strain by Downtown Sasquatch, a Artist Formerly Known as Jimmy Brooks shined when asked to play a 1970s RB singer, a bold let automobile salesman and a rare black Canadian named Jared.
Seeing as yet he’s a usually low-pitched guest in new memory able of pulling double avocation as adroitly as five-timer Justin Timberlake, it’s easy to suppose Lorne Michaels job Drake on a dungeon phone again during Season 42. (And to consider he allegedly started from a very bottom!)
Lo and behold, my picks for best and misfortune sketches from Season 41’s penultimate episode:
BEST: DRAKE’S BEEF
In what was arguably a best digital brief of a season, a Grammy winner drew impulse for his latest verses from a engorgement of rage-inducing #FirstWorldProblems. His lyrics grew some-more pithy with any purported confrontation, like when Pete Davidson finished fun of him for carrying difficulty with his radio set, or when Aidy Bryant private his ball tip from a circuitously chair to make herself comfortable.
BEST: MORE THAN A MEME (OPENING MONOLOGUE)
Before busting out a Rihanna wig to repudiate rumors that they’re some-more than only friends, Drake embraced his purpose in Internet culture with a crafty ballad that poked fun during a many memes desirous by his “Hotline Bling” dance moves, his time on Degrassi and a cover of his latest manuscript release.
BEST: BLACK JEOPARDY
In a latest book of one of SNL’s many arguable diversion uncover sketches, Drake tackled a character he was innate to play: a black Canadian. Though we could’ve finished though a self-referential amusement when horde Darnell Hayes claimed that no good rappers have ever come from north of a border, Rick Moranis-enthusiast Jared was “hilarious, dawg” with his thick Toronto accent, his inability to be uncivil and his disaster to surpass during such categories as “Oh Snap!” and “Bruh.” Thankfully for Jared, he still managed to win by uttering a tip black word of a day.
HONORABLE MENTION: JAY PHARAOH ON WEEKEND UPDATE
Pharaoh is SNL‘s go-to impressionist these days, and for good reason. This was a second time he brought a parade of impersonations to a Update table this season, though his A+ channeling of rappers such as Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj and Will Smith (aka a rapper Colin Jost likes) put this shred over a top. Drake opposed him about his Drake sense was only a topping on a cake.
WORST: BABY BOSS
Whether we adore or hatred this blueprint in that Dick Patterson is a 52-and-9-months-old male with a physique of a baby, there’s no denying Beck Bennett’s joining to a bit. His MVP-level physicality was no reduction considerable here, though a blueprint surrounding a character’s lapse left most to be preferred and finished little-to-no use of Drake. This time around, Patterson was brought in as a intensity Republican claimant for boss should Donald Trump not secure adequate representatives to equivocate a contested convention. Blerg.
OK, it’s your turn: What did we consider of this week’s SNL? Grade a part in a poll, afterwards sound off in a comments.
